1. QB D’Eriq King, Houston to Miami
Let’s try this again.
Miami had a quarterback issue going into last year, and Ohio State transfer Tate Martell was supposed to be the one to rally the mediocre offense around.
Instead, Jarren Williams won the job, Martell only attempted and completed one pass, and the Cane O was miserable. Williams has transferred, but Martell and N’Kosi Perry are still around for now.
In comes King, a former Houston statistical superstar who played in four games last year, but sat out the rest of the way to preserve his eligibility.
In his time with the Cougars, he completed 62% of his passes for 4,925 yards and 50 touchdowns with just ten picks, and he ran for 1.421 yards and 28 scores.
For a Miami offense that needs a spark and a signature star – to go along with what should be a terrific defense – he should make a night-and-day difference.
